Weed treatment area at Lake Kurwongbah

lake Kurwongbah is no longer spilling!

Friday 24 May 2024

For the first time in what seems like months, Lake Kurwongbah is no longer spilling! And hopefully, if the weather holds it'll stay that way...

It might not seem like much but it's a significant change which might improve the fishing. Things have been crazy tough since the relentless rain pushed the water levels up to spilling point and that coupled with insanely quick weed growth has severely impacted the bass fishing.

The other bit of interesting news was an alert from SEQ Water about aquatic weed management. This is really welcome as after the weed explosion about a month ago it's been pretty much out of control making some really productive areas virtually unfishable. The treatment is taking place for 3 days between the 23rd and 25th of May 2024 which rules out fishing for this week.

So who knows, maybe things will improve on the fishing front? Looking back over my blog posts and videos I'm coming up on the first anniversary of fishing at Lake Kurwongbah and so much has changed in that time. I had some amazing sessions through June and July last year so fingers crossed I can bag some decent quality bass before the winter pattern well and truly kicks in. Watch this space!
